Client project: Vibrant colours at play

A newly married couple from Panchkula recently had their first floor bedroom furnished. Vitrified ceramic wooden floor tiles had already been laid and wooden beam work had been carried out in the partitioned ceiling.

Furniture and soft furnishings were added to create an eclectic space with a Moroccan essence and varying shades of grey formed the basis for this palette.

The focal point of this lengthy room was the huge expanse of window.

Dressed with sheer roman blinds and eyelet curtains, the window was further enhanced with armchairs upholstered in rich vibrant hues of deep turquoise raw silk, grey chenille and scarlet cushions.

A feature wall was dressed with a muted grey tone wallpaper embossed with a geometric pattern, typical of Morocco. Fretwork – another element of Moroccan style was beautifully hand carved out of solid teak wood to make a stunning headboard of curves and swirls.

As a result, the clients welcomed their new relaxing boudoir with its rich textures and strong characteristics.
